The Good....and The Uglies!

So, this morning I was trying to get dressed for work.....and decided to try a few things on - things that didn't fit me a few months ago.

What I've recently noticed is that my belly is big........I'm thinking that my shorts and skirts all fit well, actually, they're all getting a bit loose on why is my belly looking the way it does? I know I've been off program and not been to the gym in 3 weeks, so I'm scared...really scared....that I've gained some weight back. Scale says STS, so nope, that's not it. I got out the handy-dandy tape measure and voilà! I've lost an inch off my ribcage and an inch of my waist.......any my belly looks bigger?

Well, mystery solved......I've lost inches! everwhere BUT my it's just another one of those "ugly duckling" stages that is going to help drive me to my end destination - back to the gym I go tomorrow, back to tracking food intake as well.

I'm not going to get mad about this, I'm just going to get EVEN! (losing more inches and more weight and getting healthier will do that!)

My blog is broken?!

I've tried, repeatedly to post on my blog - or to put a response one of the ones I follow - it's not working!

How frustrating, that now, when I finally seem to have myself mentally in the right headspace and am working up to being physically active (formally at the gym), and tracking my food intake, and start losing weight again - well, here's one more attempt!

Being back at work full-time while our corn business is humming is so very difficult - time management skills of the Gods are required to balance everything and I seem to have forgotten about taking care of me (now there's a surprise - seem like this happens every single year!)

So, had a BIG (stressfully BIG) meeting at work yesterday that I was just dreading - a finance meeting. So after months of preventative worrying, hours and hours of prep work, it went off without a hitch, and I can't tell you how great it feels to have it behind me!

Time now to refocus on me - going back to the gym on Friday (hopefully more than just Friday, but have to start somewhere) and working with my trainer......back on the 17DD on Friday when I have a few minutes to clean out the fridge and restock, and time to figure out how to destress at the end of the day.

I seem to also be having problems posting on some blogs I follow, so I hope you folks see this!

Sunshinemama - I just love groovin' to the music in the kitchen - that speaks volumes to the fact that your mind is in a good place! Keep up the great work!

Leanne - awesome news about your doctor's note - so happy to see how strong you are feeling and here's hoping that Friday's tests will be over without too much stress on you and come back with great results!

Marcy - you never cease to impress me with your dedication to working out! I want to be you when I grow up!

Why I've been MIA!

Hi folks - it's corn season for us on the farm once again - here's what I've been up to:

I'll be back posting here in mid September once corn season is over!
